MV F4 not considered a "milestone" motorcycle...

There's a discussion going on over at FerrariChat (www.ferrarichat.com) about "milestone" motorcycles. I tried to get a plug in for the F4 750 being a milestone cycle but there doesn't seem to be much support. Folks with a little better grasp of the history of cycles should go over there and help make the point. You can find the thread here.

this just reaffirms one a my "rules of thumb"

motorcycle guys are usually car guys too, but not the other way around.

anyone else notice this as well?

I can't be bothered getting into a fight with people who obviously don't know bikes - the whole argument is so auto/americentric - could you really have a list of important bikes that doesn't include a BMW or a road Guzzi or a Laverda or a Brough or a AJS or a Ducati 750ss or a Hesketh or I could go on - How about we start our own list?

I'll start ; the most important motorcycles in the history of motorcycling.

1. Ducati 916 and all iterations thereof through the 998
2. Mv 750S 1971

oh and to enter this 'competition' you must find a really good picture....[!]

They missed alot of bikes, in my opinion.



1941 Harley FL (knucklehead), one of the most beautiful motorcycles ever designed, for example.

1985 Yamaha Vmax, the first real muscle bike.

1978 Honda CBX

1967 Norton Commando

This list could go on for a very long time......

So i contribute to this forum not only because im an mv owner, but have seen right from the start that all members i have talked with or discussed with alway try and understand where im coming from 1st before judging.

As this is a MV board we can be forgiven for assuming the F4 would be a milestone motorcycle, everything Tamburini pens for me like Pininfarina for Ferrari. 916 Duke is a gimme too.

....well, in all honesty, in the big scheme of motorcycles, I don't think the F4S is really a milestone. The 916, yes...but not the F4. Most beautiful motorcyle for it's time, yes. But not really a milestone.

I agree with Allan. There's nothing in the MV 750 that really redefined motorcycles. It inherited a lot of features that did, but didn't really introduce anything revolutionary. (Just packaged them together really well.)

I've not read the thread, but as for my votes for the list, I'd have to add the '91 CBR900RR FireBlade, which redefined the class, and not so much threw down the gauntlet as slap the world around the face with it.
